Ocasio-Cortez condemns college Republicans' email calling her a domestic terrorist

General April 12, 2019

Ocasio-Cortez condemns college Republicans' email calling her a domestic terroristNew York congresswoman says ‘uncalled for’ rhetoric puts her and colleagues in dangerAlexandria Ocasio-Cortez said comments like those in the email routinely led to a ‘spike in death threats’. Photograph: Carlos Barría/ReutersA fundraising email sent by a college Republican group branding the US representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as a “domestic terrorist” drew a sharp rebuke from the congresswoman, who warned that similar rhetorical attacks had in the past resulted in a spike in death threats against her.An email sent on Tuesday by Tom Ferrall, chairman of the Ohio Federation of College Republicans, bore the subject line “AOC is a domestic terrorist” and asked recipients to donate to his group. Dave Levinthal, an editor at the Center for Public Integrity, on Wednesday afternoon shared a screenshot of the email on Twitter.“My fellow students often tell me that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a ‘role model’ and that America should be more like socialist Europe,” the email, which appeared not to use the word “terrorist” elsewhere, read in part. It told recipients: “We need your help to stop the brainwashing!”The email fit the template for fundraising emails by similar groups.“This puts me in danger every time,” tweeted Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old freshman congresswoman whose outspoken progressive views, youth, nimble social media presence and all-around star power yet perhaps do not explain the extent to which she has become a bugbear for the right.“Almost every time this uncalled for rhetoric gets blasted by conserv. grps,” she tweeted, “we get a spike in death threats to refer to Capitol Police.”> This puts me in danger every time. > > Almost every time this uncalled for rhetoric gets blasted by conserv. grps, we get a spike in death threats to refer to Capitol Police. > > Multiple ppl have been arrested trying to harm me, Ilhan, & others.@GOP, what’s it going to take to stop? https://t.co/vpous77RbT> > — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) April 10, 2019After Ocasio-Cortez tweeted about it, the Ohio Federation of College Republicans distanced itself from the email, calling it “unauthorized” without explaining what that meant. “We apologize to Congresswoman Ocascio-Cortez [sic] for the use of unacceptable language in this email, and we do not approve of the message conveyed,” the group said.Ferrall, whose name was on the email’s signature line, told the Guardian in an email that his group would have no comment beyond the statement. Capitol Police told the Guardian in a statement it could not discuss how it carries out is protective responsibilities for Congress.Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional district in Queens, New York, is 400 miles from the Ohio border. The bellwether state voted for Donald Trump by eight points over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

  • Michael Bloomberg robbed the DNC

    by on August 22, 2020 - 0 Comments

    Michael Bloomberg robbed the DNCWe now know how much the going rate is for a spot at the Democratic National Convention. Michael Bloomberg spoke for five minutes on Thursday night not long before the nominee itself, a role arguably more prominent than that of Bernie Sanders, the much-abused runner-up.The former New York mayor's remarks were exactly what you would expect. He began by pointing out that he is not a Democrat. He gloated about the vast amounts of money he has given to buy politicians in all parties. He quoted a children's book. He talked about the importance of experts, like the ones he deferred to when he doubled down on the brutal policing tactics that have been the subject of protests across the country. He even said "hell" twice.The best part is that he didn't even have to pay for it. Bloomberg reneged on his promise back in March to keep the thousands of paid staff members who carried him to his towering victory in the 2020 American Samoa Democratic primary onboard until the general election. He has given a whopping $18 million to the party itself and just over $4 million to other grassroots organizations this year. He also offered them some useless free office space during the lockdown.At least President Trump was watching. > After the worst debate performance in the history of politics, Michael Bloomberg, commonly known as Mini Mike, is trying to make a comeback by begging the Democrats for relevance. They treated him like a dog - and always will. Before politics, he said GREAT things about me!> > -- Donald J.
